Nukeproof Reveal Sam Hills Custom Crankworx Mega 275.

With Sam killing it in his last two Enduro World Series Rounds (Wicklow and La Thuile), alongside his downhill day job, Nukeproof thought it was appropriate to do something a little special as a surprise present.

Vintage Western Gold whiskey, Sam’s “Apple Jacks” cocktail and the stunning views of Dolceaqua, Italy were the backdrop for this projects gestation.Sam Hill Monster Energy Nukeproof Mega Team Chain Reaction Cycles PayPal UCI Downhill World Cup Enduro World Series Crankworx Whistler Wideopenmag

After a day riding some of Italy’s finest trails, Sam was explaining how his eldest son had found a new obsession, Grave Digger. Grave Digger is the world famous Monster truck conceived in 1982 by Dennis Anderson.

Bam, following in his dad’s love for all things Green and Purple (If you look at Sam’s Leatt helmet earlier this year it was custom painted in black, green and purple.), had discovered the truck and was quickly obsessed with it and his model of Grave Digger. Sam had recently taken Bam to meet the real life truck at a Monster Truck meet in his native city of Perth.Sam Hill Monster Energy Nukeproof Mega Team Chain Reaction Cycles PayPal UCI Downhill World Cup Enduro World Series Crankworx Whistler Wideopenmag

This is the text message Nukeproof global marketing manager, Rob Sherratt, received from Sam shortly after getting the frame:

“******* legends, this is by far the coolest bike I’ve ever had. Thanks so much, I’m pumped on it!”Sam Hill Monster Energy Nukeproof Mega Team Chain Reaction Cycles PayPal UCI Downhill World Cup Enduro World Series Crankworx Whistler Wideopenmag

Special thanks to Elite Refinish, Belfast, for turning this project around in a short timescale, Sam only decided to go to this EWS after La Thuile! (the frame has over 60 hours of steady-handed airbrushing detail in the frame.)

Keep an eye out for Mr. Flat Pedal Thunder himself at the Whistler round of the Enduro World Series. Will we see the silent assassin taking more enduro scalps in Canada leading up to the final two World Cup rounds?
